I would start with `man h2xs' (only a start), and get _Programming Perl_, 
which talks about it some, as does _The Perl Cookbook_, I believe.  Then 
there's the perlmodlib, perlxs, and perlxstut man pages.  The first covers 
writing perl modules, the second covers the xs interface, and the last is a 
tutorial.  After those, you might want to read perlguts (man page covering the 
internal functions within perl).  I haven't read through all these, but they 
would be my first place to look.
